The most important things in life I learned from my dogs. Most of the rest I learned by screwing up -- including almost all of what I know about LEGOŽ.
Most of my MOCs are working machines born of a fascination with gadgets and the science and engineering behind them. Technical LEGOŽ -- my term for building centered on Technic, Power Functions, and Mindstorms elements, studless or otherwise -- brings out my inner inventor/designer/engineer in a way that no other medium I've tried can match.
Because technical LEGOŽ also gives me a chance to operate decent simulations of gizmos my wife would never allow me to buy, functional realism usually gets top priority. (I suppose she has a point about the Mars rover, polar research vehicle, and marine geology research vessel, but why she's so dead-set against a mining truck beats me. Heck, some of her purses haul that much!)
Much of my designing and building in the last year or so has revolved around technical LEGOŽ devices meant to interact strongly with air or water -- hence the Wind power and Motorized boats and ships folders.
As you'll see with my Little Black Tank, I also enjoy cooking up backstories for MOCs.
My work owes a great deal to the folks on my list of favorite builders. Their imagination and ingenuity never cease to amaze. Please check them out.
Hope you'll stay tuned, as I still have many more MOCs to post.
Thanks for dropping by!
PS: Some of my MOCs really belong in more than one folder, but MOCpages doesn't support that. If you find something of interest in one folder, please poke around in the others, as you may well find similar MOCs there.
